Leadership: It's About People

Great leadership article here from Mark Lauterbach.  Here is the conclusion:
A quote from Peter Drucker has stuck with me. In discussing leadership of employees in his 900 page tome on management, he notes that a most significant principle in management is to remember that people are weak, some of us are pitifully weak.

How do I shape my teaching of doctrine in light of the weakness of people? Jesus seems to have done so. H e did not break a bruised reed, or snuff out a smoking flax (Matt 12). I must as well.

I must study God’s Word and study God’s people — the reality of their weaknesses and limits. I must preach and minister the truth about a real God who brings redemptive power to real people in the midst of real life.
Read the rest.
